Creditors' Rights

Protecting Creditors' Rights

Businesses and individuals that offer credit to their clients have rights. However, attempting to exert those rights and collect on debts can be challenging. Having a skilled lawyer on your side to guide you through the process may improve the odds of successful collection actions.

Handling All Aspects Of Collections And Creditors' Rights

At Heekin Law, P.A. in Jacksonville, we have experience assisting Florida creditors in filing lawsuits and using other techniques to collect consumer and commercial debts. We can address liens and repossession of secured goods. We can work with businesses in all industries and have substantial experience assisting contractors and other construction businesses with collection matters.

In addition to representing you against the debtor, we can address conflict between other creditors. We are adept at matters involving priority of creditors and will take the necessary steps to protect your interest in one or more of the debtor's assets.

Ultimately, our goal is to recover the money you are owed. Filing a lawsuit is often only the first step in that process. Our attorneys stay with the case even after a judgment is issued, following through to collect on the judgment. Depending on the situation, that may mean pursuing wage garnishment or account garnishment.

Bankruptcy Representation For Creditors

We represent creditors in bankruptcy proceedings. When appropriate, we can contest the bankruptcy in an adversary proceeding. This is most common in cases in which the debtor may have committed fraud. Even if there are no fraud allegations, we can protect your interests and help you find any opportunity to recover the money you are owed. Furthermore, we can defend against preference actions filed by the debtor or bankruptcy trustee.
